30 Charming Flat Logo Designs

Flat design is a hot trend right now. It all started when companies like Microsoft went all in with flat UI design. Now we see Google and Apple joining the flat design bandwagon as skeuomorphism fades away.

Color in flat logo designs ranges from the minimalist two-color scheme all the way to multiple colors. The logos typically consist of clean lines, classic graphics, and simple fonts. The focus is mainly on distinctive colors instead of elaborate color gradients and shading. It is not unusual for a two-color design to use a vibrant color with white as the second color. Typically, flat logos revolve around lovely fonts and typeface instead of eye-popping elements.

Additionally, flat logos allow logo designers to strip away the flamboyant to focus more on conveying a concise idea. The thought behind these designs is that the company logo is at the forefront and is strong enough to communicate the corporate ideology. Some attribute the desirability of flat logos to ease and cost-effectiveness for small companies and start-ups.

To get you inspired, we collected 30 outstanding examples of flat logo designs. Enjoy!
